Ethics: Understanding Emotional Release

Course description:
Why does emotional release happen during a massage? What are different ways that emotions can manifest in a session? What happens if a “negative” emotion like fear or anger comes up? This course explores the complexities for both client and therapist to safely and appropriately handle the emotional material that can come to the surface with the power of touch.

Ethics: Boundary Setting
3 hours      $57

Course description:
Boundary issues between therapist and client are especially sensitive, and often require clients to make unusual boundary adjustments.  This class will address five types of boundaries: physical, emotional, intellectual, sexual and energetic; and teach the students when to decide which boundary model to use: permeable, semi-permeable and rigid.  Students will get to present case histories and receive input from their classmates and instructor for discussion.
